Confidential Information Report (IR) to FHA Gary Pinkstaff

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

2002-10-24-pinstaff-confidential

We’ll start here.  This IR (link to PDF above) was written at the request of Arizona State Prison Complex–Florence (ASPC-F) Facilities Health Care Manager Gary Pinkstaff.  Early on the morning of 24 Oct 2002, I met with FHCM Pinkstaff and my immediate supervising Psychologist III Susan Arnold in the Medical Administration inside “The Walls” at Central Unit.  After Dr. Arnold left Mr. Pinkstaff’s office, I complained to our supervisor FHCM Pinkstaff that Dr. Arnold was signing off knowingly on excessive hours fraudulently claimed by our locum tenums contract psychiatrist David Rupley, Jr, MD(H).  Malfeasance.

Dr. Rupley had been working with us for several months.  While he was working only 3.5 hours on average each day, he billed the State of Arizona for 10 hours each & every day he showed up.  Everyone knew about his fraud.  Everyone in mental health and pharmacy complained bitterly and openly about his “greed,” especially my Psychiatric Nurse II Vicky Brumfield, RN.  Everyone talked about turning Rupley in.  So, I may not have been the only one to complain to Dr. Arnold.  However, I went first to Dr. Arnold and then up my chain of command.

Susan Arnold, Ph.D., Acting Psychologist III for ASPC–Florence, responded ’she didn’t have anyone else to write meds (sic) and didn’t know what else to do.’  She refused to correct the situation.  Therefore, I was obligated to go over her head.  Gary Pinkstaff insisted I give him my report in writing

Approximately 3:00 PM that afternoon, I delivered this (above PDF) hand written confidential Information Report to Pinkstaff.  He told me to drop my IR on the pile of papers on the table inside the door.  He acted like he did not remember his order from 10:00 AM.  He refused to look me in the eyes; he refused to acknowledge me.  It felt very awkward.  I took the hint and left.

I never heard another word about this matter.  That is, until Mr. Pinstaff’s supervisor Mr. Taylor showed up several months later in the Spring of 2003 and interviewed me.  Even then I heard nothing until the fall of 2004.  Central Unit’s Medical Records Librarian told me a certain gentleman from ADOC’s Central office called her and told her ’it would be a good time if that IR from Kent showed up right now.’  However, after all the abuse and battering I had suffered, and, more importantly, because that man did not call me directly and ask me for a copy, I did not trust the method of communication and did not contact him.

Much time has passed since then and I do not recall the name of that gentleman nor does my former Medical Records Librarian who shall remain unnamed because she is a private person who did nothing wrong.  But, all staff almost universally cautioned about any contact with anyone from ADC’s Central Office because nothing ever went well.  And nothing I ever saw ever did with one exception.  That was with Kim O’Connor but was extremely short lived.

Something else my Psychiatric Nurse II Vicky Brumfield complained about was Dr. Rupley’s failure to order the lab work necessary for the psychiatric medications he was prescribing.  It took us more than a year working in conjunction with Acting Psychologist III Susan Arnold to get Rupley to being writing labs for his meds.  But, it was apparently too little too late–we had inmates (plural) die from psychiatric “medication errors” according to FHCM II Andi Cordova in the fall of 2003.  Agranularcytosis is a horrible death–but that is another story.

Rupley was allowed to continue practising psychiatry on inmates for at least another full year.  Late in the summer of 2004, Mental Health Manager Pamela C. McCauley, Ph.D. ‘decided not to renew Dr. Rulety’s contract,’ according to Dr. Arnold’s account on 17 Aug 2004.  However, there was no mistaking Dr. Arnold’s anger because she had had to “escort” Dr. Rupley off the complex.  Escorting only occurs when someone is being let go, much like Dr. Arnold was later escorted–but that is another story.

Let the Public Trial Begin

Sunday, June 20th, 2010

We are about to begin a new path on Dr Kent’s Blog. Actually, this is the old path, the old issues I sought to make public. However, there is a lot to the story. It is very involved and it is much harder to understand it in it’s entirely than it is to convey it. Even trying to covey it is difficult.

For one, it is emotionally charged for me. It not only involves my professional life but my personal life. This includes my failed attempt at marriage; I tried to marry what turned out to be a sociopath, a scam artist whose only interest was in predating upon men. This is rather involved but we are going to get into it all. Well, most of it.

I am still recovering from the whole ordeal. Ultimately, it resulted in severely compromising my health and it may yet kill me. Nonetheless, I shall be posting as much of the hard evidence and documentation as I can publically. Please bear with me as I try to organize my presentation. My purpose is in merely getting this info out there. Others may organize it into a story or stories or a play or a movie later.

My purposes in this are (1) to make the story and the evidence available so that those who lost their loved ones to wrongful death may pursue justice. However, there is fat chance of this in Arizona! The courts and State bureaucracy are loaded with self-protecting fools who now suffer because of their dereliction of duty at the fate of the invading horde (illegal alien Mexicans and all) and ultimately nuclear annihilation.

Also, (2) I publish these matters to clear my name and reputation. I am merely a man, a sinner, a work I progress like all of you.

Finally, (3) I want to get this behind me and move on with my life. You see, the best revenge is to live a good life. Let the LORD Our God have all the vengeance.

About that nuclear annihilation, this (future) will not be the first time use of a nuclear device has been attempted on the Greater Phoenix Area. I blogged about the (past) first attempt years ago. It was a “dirty bomb” hauled in a foot locker by four Iraqi’s who were trying to get close to Palo Verde (the nuclear plant) to detonate it—only a sheriff’s deputy (one of Arpaio’s men) stumbled upon them.

The sheriff’s deputy was astounded that the four “Mexicans” did not respond when he told them in clear Spanish that they should unload the trunk and carry the load on their backs. That’s how close we came to getting “nuked” on our own soil!

Napolitano was Governor at the time and you never heard about it. I heard about it because people talk to me and tell me everything; moreover, God guides my steps and places me where He wants me—to hear from others and to help others—to receive His messages and, more importantly, to deliver His messages.

My Absence of the past six months . . .

Sunday, April 4th, 2010

 . . . was necessary in order to avoid more retaliation at the hands of the Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners.  Since then I have successfully retired my psychologist licenses and I have left the State of Arizona.

It’s good to be back blogging and in Alaska.  I have added twitter to my web presence at http://twitter.com/DrKentShow

However, I am still in recovery after a long ordeal that began at the Arizona Department of Corrections (ADC) and was continued by the Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners.  But I can report gains and discoveries.

If you read my new tabbed web pages entitled “Giving Psychology Away” and “Positive Projective Psychology,” I think you’ll begin to get a flavor of why I left the field and gave up my psychologist licenses.

Psychologists are supposed to be stalwarts of society and when psychologists begin to make wrong choices and do bad things, all of society suffers.  As you read my blog, you will come to understand what I am referring to.

I promise I won’t let you down.  I will do the right thing and I will astound you with my insights and revelations.

After giving practically everything  I owned away (donating) and returning to Alaska, getting settled has been rough.  Day Light Savings Time is terrible; Day Light Savings Time  is bad for biological systems.

The drive up the Alaskan Canadian Highway (the Alcan) was an ordeal.  It became the second most dangerous ride of my life only after my family’s first excursion up the Alcan in the summer of 1969 before it was paved.  Back then we drove in a cloud of dust and slid the whole way up on the fist-sized rocks they called gravel.  Only this time I was driving.  Except for my cat and my dog I was alone.

I hit the road just five days after the first snowfall.  Snow removal was poor to non-existent as the Canadians had just broken out their snow removal equipment.  The road was icy and deeply rutted by truck tire chains.   I had a tire blow out on my trailer at speed. 

It seemed everyone who was towing a trailer ended up off the road in the ditch and stuck exceptfor me in my AWD SUV with its sophisticated traction controls.  It took every bit of its 450 HP to pull me and my trailer back up onto the road when I was trying to avoid T-boning an 18-wheeler on the morning of my last day on the Alcan.  My U-Haul trailer ended up weighing several hundred pounds more and looked like a dirty ice cube–covered in sheets & slabs of ice and dirt in Whitehorse.  Worst of all: My cat Curly died in Edmonton.  I really miss him.  Curly used to rouse me every morning and insisted we played first thing.  He was a good cat. 

I met some really nice people on the road back and the overriding concensus:  We were all gladly leaving the lower 48 states in order to escape the ominous fate of the contiguous states and their big cities. 

Everyone felt we were leaving Sodom & Gomora just in time.  Indeed, we have.  More on that later.  Much much more.

Welcome, to the newly improved Dr. Kent web site.  I hope my fans will find me and once again make my blog and web site rise to the top of Internet search engines.

Your suggestions for my web site & blog and my web presence and your continued prayers & support are greatly appreciated.

At your service,

Dr. Kent

There is indeed a lot more to this story!

Sonja Bolf, Executive Director

Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners 1400 West Washington, Room 235

Phoenix, AZ 85007

Via CERTIFIED U.S. MAIL

-RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED‑

Re:                                                         Request for Investigation: Susanne Arnold, Ph.D.

Negligence and Neglect Leading to Unnecessary Loss of Lives and Other.

Dear Executive Director Sonja Bolf:

Attached is my completed formal Request for Investigation form. In 2005, I attempted to work closely with the Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiner’s Investigator David S. Shapiro; however, rather than work with me on very serious concerns, Mr. Shapiro made some sort of report to the Board indicating that I was perhaps mentally unstable. Mr. Shapiro’s report, whatever it was, was cited by a Board member along with Dr. McCauley’s written response to the Board in a motion ordering me to undergo scrutiny at my expense. That was my second RFI generated internally by this Board.

Allow me to give you some history: After introducing myself to Mr. Shapiro in person at the Board’s office, I expressed my concerns over my duty to report to the Board in light of the overwhelming number of violations of our Rules & Regulations and Arizona Revised Statutes I observed. I asked Mr. Shapiro for advice on how I should handle these matters, and after discussing multiple concerns, Investigator Shapiro told me he thought I could not bring all of those matters to the attention of his Board. More importantly, Mr. Shapiro asked me to bring this complaint regarding the loss of life to the Board.

At that time, I was working within the Arizona Department of Corrections with other professional staff attempting to obtain identifying information regarding the victim(s). Nonetheless, due to the manner in which records are kept in ADOC, after a lot of time and effort, we were not able to obtain the information necessary to come forward with a pressing case. Notwithstanding, we knew several important things. Let me explain Dr. Susanne Arnold’s role in all of this:

Dr. Arnold hired a man who was not qualified to provide professional psychiatric services for ADOC. Dr. Arnold failed to check this applicant’s credentials. I believe, David Rupley, Jr., MD(H) worked at the Arizona State Prison Complexes in Florence and Eyman and other locations in ADOC providing psychiatric services.

Dr. Arnold knowingly signed off on this man’s hours even though she knew they were fraudulent. That is, he had not worked them and she allowed him to defraud the State of significant sums of money. This is why they retaliated against me and sought to destroy me by conspiring to bring false allegations of sexual harassment against me. See attachments. There is more, far more to the story.

Dr. Arnold refused to take necessary action to correct this man’s practice in psychiatry. Specifically, Dr. Arnold failed to correct Dr. Rupley in his failure to monitor the psychiatric medications he was prescribing. More specifically, for more than an entire year, she failed to require Rupley to follow the standard of care of the community, through Arizona and across the entire country. That is, some of these psychiatric medications have Black Box Warnings regarding the necessity to check liver profiles in order to avoid death by agranular cytosis, i.e. Depakote.

Moreover, I have reason to believe that Dr. Arnold knew about several unnecessary inmate deaths. All due to medication errors. All committed by Dr. Rupley between 2002 and 2003. YET, Dr. Arnold allowed Dr. Rupley to continue working at ADOC for at least another full year unimpeded and uncorrected! And Dr. Rupley in all likelihood was allowed to kill more men! Dr. Arnold enabled this horrible malpractice by David Rupley, Jr., MD(H)!

I also brought this to the attention of the Board’s next investigator. When she and I talked on the telephone, she became upset and yelled at me. She told me this Board was ill equipped to handle those matters. Moreover, she told me there were other agencies to which I should make my reports. I have followed her advice to no avail—other than to get myself targeted for more harassment from this Board.

Lastly, when I was notified of a fifth complaint against me before this Board (submitted by the former Director or Programs for ADOC who, by the way, resigned in lieu of termination for having committed real sexual harassment [quid pro quo]); I called the Board’s former Executive Director Mrs. Maxine McCarthy. I wanted to inquire as to the nature of the matter brought to the Board’s attention as no information was forthcoming other than an invitation to the Board’s hearing on August 18, 2006.

When I called Maxine McCarthy on approximately August 15, 2006, I was still reeling and recovering from my chemical ordeal subsequent to the improper discontinuation (under physician’s orders) of bromocriptine on March 30, 2006. In that condition, I was defenseless. Executive Director Maxine McCarthy tried to take me into her confidence. She asked me what was going on: “What’s going on? What’s been going on? You can tell me anything. It’s not going any further.”

While I was in bad shape, I still recognized that whatever I told her would be going further. I acted somewhat impulsively and I told her truthfully and candidly what was behind the efforts to retaliate against me. I told Mrs. McCarthy that there had been an unlicensed psychiatrist at ADOC. He killed several inmates with his medications, and they were trying to hide the deaths.

To which, McCarthy exclaimed and demanded: “You mean we haven’t heard the last of this yet?”

Straight forward,

Read Obama’s Books and Learn about Obama

Saturday, August 15th, 2009

 

 

Obama from Dreams of My Father:

*

‘I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.’
 
‘I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race.’
     
‘There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.’
   
‘It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.’   

‘I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own. It was  into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa, that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself: the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.’

Obama from Audacity of Hope: 

‘I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.’ 

Remember “Al’s lesson:”  If you listen carefully a person will tell you about themselves.

 

Well, read carefully and not necessarily between the lines:

Obama told US about himself long ago. 

*

 

Next year there will be no Obama bumper stickers, no Obama T-shirts.

 

People will be ashamed to admit they voted for the lying Kenyan Bastard!

 

 

Al’s Lesson: How to Learn about Other People or Is Nancy Pelosi a Nazi?

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

 

Al’s lesson is very simple but it’s worth knowing because it is profoundly true and works on anyone—including on psychologists and politicians.  It is extremely useful.  Here it is:

 

‘If you listen closely, a person will always tell you about themselves.’

 

Let me put that in other words:

 

‘If you listen carefully, you’ll hear a person tell you what they are about.’

 

Early on when meeting someone, listen closely and you’ll hear them tell you all about themselves in their own words, from their own mouth.

 

Let’s apply this principle to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s recent utterances.  Do you remember what Pelosi called those normal and concerned citizens who appeared at the Town Hall meetings and protested about Obamacare?

 

Pelosi used several words but if we apply Al’s Principle, the single word that stands out from the rest, that single descriptor that Pelosi used erroneously on others that was extremely applicable to herself was

 

“Nazi.”

 

There you have it:

 

The Speaker of the House telling you that she and they are Nazi’s.

 

So, now at least we know the spirit of the party that is in charge.

 

In closing I want to credit Psychologist Al Silberman with that wonderful private lesson.  While Dr. Silberman is not at liberty to reveal that I was his client, I am.  I saw him for support during my marital separation and annulment.  This was a very valuable lesson.

 

Dr. Silberman is an ethical and moral psychologist.  However, I did not find his attorney very likable because he did not speak accurately and truthfully.

 

You’ll find Al listed in my RFI section only because it is a small yet important part of my story.  It needs to be there in order to understand the whole story. 

 

Stay tuned.

What are the Differences between Psychiatrists and Psychologists?

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

 

While there are vast differences within these categories and there are books I will review that explain their histories and origins, in a nutshell the main differences between psychiatrists and psychologists are:

 

Psychiatrists prescribe medicine and their main method of treatment consists of medications and secondarily grossly disabling techniques including electroshock and lobotomy.

 

—All medications work upon principles of disabling and toxicity—

 

Psychologists use methods of behavioral treatments that operate upon principles of “sensitization” and “desensitization.”

 

There are many modalities of “talk therapy,” none of which may be considered “toxic” or “disabling”—except when psychologists serve to uphold The Medical Model and “reify” the diagnosis thus causing “iatrogenesis.”

 

Psychologists earn “real” doctoral degrees and are true scientists trained in the scientific method.  In comparison psychiatrists earn “technical degrees” and are mere technicians.

 

Psychiatrists are “medical doctors” and are trained in understanding the risks and benefits of medications.  The “medical doctor” or “MD” degree has existed for less than a century.

 

Psychologists are the original “doctors” and have “doctor of philosophy” degrees.  The “Ph.D.” has four centuries of heritage.

 

“Iatrogenesis” is “physician caused illness” and is not limited to the practices of either psychiatrists or psychologists.

Obama’s ASU Commencement Speech Holds Neither Water or Substance

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

 

Liar-in-Chief President Obama continues in his fine tradition of lying and deceiving.  Even I must admit Obama’s presentation is great.  But Barrack Hussein Obama’s teleprompter reading talents belong on the evening news rather than in the office of the American President!

 

Take my life as an example:  I lived for greater causes and, more specifically, I lived to help others better themselves.  I did this in the Alaskan Bush, in the Deep South and in Indian country. 

 

What I learned is that the world is ruled by raw power and those “illiberals” in political office abuse their power to protect their fellow criminals.

 

Take the Arizona Department of Corrections for example. 

 

While I made major contributions as best I was allowed to providing better services and releasing a “safer product,” the graft & greed in ADOC Mental Health and Counseling & Treatment Services was only exceeded by their audacity in using raw power to harm anyone who did his job according to the Arizona State Revised Statues (ASRS), all the Rule & Regulations and ADOC Policy.

 

In fact, Obama rewarded those culprits by appointing their chief-in-crime to Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.  And Janet took her lover Dora with her to Washington, DC. 

 

None dare call it nepotism.

 

While the minions below got away with murder, fraud, theft, rape, and all sorts of felonies. 

 

So, crime does pay—at least for those “illiberals” sharing the same philosophy—while lying, cheating and deceiving America and the US Treasury!

 

However, President Obama’s commencement address at Arizona State University is for me personally inspiring:

 

I shall continue to give my all to bettering those poor people who have been unable and are unable to defend themselves—especially those dead inmates. 

 

Schriro allowed the cover ups and ultimately Director Dora Schriro covered those murders up! 

 

While they literally buried the “evidence,” ADOC and Dr. Susanne Arnold and Dr. Pamela McCauley allowed the culprit to continue practicing & harming inmate patients and defrauding the State.
